    The Anti-Defamation League has accused rock musician Roger Waters of 'anti-Jewish sentiment' in his call for a boycott of Israel.

    In an open letter to the Pink Floyd guitarist published on the organisation's website, ADL national director wrote that Mr Waters' recent statements were "colored by offensive and dangerous undercurrents of anti-Jewish sentiment".

    Mr Foxman highlighted Mr Waters’ use of an inflatable pig bearing star of David as a stage prop in a recent tour.

    He also cited what he believed to be several inaccuracies in a letter by Mr Waters published on Facebook which singled out "Israel for a boycott, while ignoring real human rights abusing countries around the world”.

    Earlier this week, Mr Waters expressed support for violinist Nigel Kennedy after he drew criticism for describing Israel as an apartheid state during a Proms concert at the Royal Albert Hall.
